This will be the last of my report on the series before my full review of the series. It was a fun time following every episode, even though the one-parters threw me off a bit. This last set (11 and 12) are two-parters once again.
We go back in time once again to Sweet Girl (Mediator)'s Grade School days as she is enrolled at a late age and plans to skip and advance a couple of grades. However, she happens to be an anti-social person who thinks that Curly, a roommate and potential friend of hers might take advantage of her age and bully her along with a suspicious group of kids her age. There's also an rumor of a group of fairies holding a tea party somewhere at the time and it might end up becoming a real event after Sweetheart finds a fairy near the bullies.
I hate spoiler-highlighting stuff because it freaks me out, but as it turns out the message at the very end likely hints at a second season, but the fans of this (such as myself) can only hope for it. This won't be the last time I'll be reviewing episodes from series like this, so keep under watch for anything, loyal readers! :)
This is what threw me off: The two episodes this time are one-parters instead of the usual two. The Mediator and the fairies got stuck on a deserted island after the latter agreed to do some soul searching with her while the next episode was on how "Watashi" became a Mediator and met the fairies for the first time (and even named some of them). Here's the lowdown of what I thought...
I'll still continue to report the series until it's end, so look out for me next time!
Another two weeks gave us a set of what the fairies can do all to score some candy, and I'm surprised that and Ringo Kid (Opposite Assistant, perhaps?) didn't drive the Mediatior completely mad like most people normally would. Then again, being in a time loop in the Fairies' World is not normal at all...
While the Mediator is entrusted to look for the Assistant after he ran off in the village, the fairies come up with a rather devious way to score more candy.
Both are spoilers, mind you. :(
That's it until next time, where we apparently learn how the fairies can survive harsh conditions!
Because I had a lot of work to do for school, I ended up skipping last week, so this one will cover both parts of "The Fairies' Homecoming".
This time, the Mediator and her assistant meet a girl whom turns out to be an android that can't remember what her mission was supposed to be. She also has an android comrade, but they're both pitted against each other due to their lack of memory, which could also get Watashi (Mediator) and her assistant killed.
Let's hope next episode also turns out wonderfully!
A small, yet important announcement to make: This will likely be the last QP before the articles will be back as NEWS Articles on the front page (Thanks to Sora_TheKey). We also won't add anymore Hentai entries to the articles (which means no more nasty Yaoi and Yuri manga for neither me nor Taka to cover [Yuri Hentai dosen't bother me but, still.]).
This time, we got people fighting each other with their Personae in a tournament (that chick over there, friggin' a! >_<), someone who doesn't like their big bro at all, a chance to re-live the first Pokemon generation again and we found someone who claims to be Daniel's sister.
I haven't read either Bakuman or Ultimo, but they're the most interesting manga out of this bunch to me aside of Slam Dunk. I only tried some of Bunny Drop and One Piece so far and not any of the other anime on that list. The big one for my week is Persona 4 Arena and the game is very good! So far, I'm being more used to Teddie and Chie, but my mains aren't decided just yet! <3
It's been a long time since I read Bakuman and Ultimo. I'm behind in them since I depend the public library. Toriko and Tegami Bachi looks interesting. I should give them a try, and I had a blast reading Pokemon Adventures. The only thing that I hate about the manga version is that they skip around a lot. In this week's anime releases, I have not tried any of them. I started getting into the One Piece craze after diving into the manga since June. I probably won't have time to try the anime. I wanted to try Bunny Drop since it scored 3rd place in the Anime Vice's Best of 2011, and it reminded me of Yotsuba.

These extras are for Persona 4 Arena (Pre-Orders) and Bunny Drop's releases. I actually got P4A via Pre-Order at GameStop and the Audio CD feels like a warm welcome since I like Yosuke and Mitsuru's themes. :)
And that's the gist for this week. See you next time! :)
If any of you don't mind, my Twitter Name is @MasterMenos while Takashichea's is also @Takashichea on Twitter. Follow us and note that it's a good thing Hentai titles weren't allowed from QP's anymore after all, otherwise, the "Hooligan" joke I was about to make would've made Kanji electrocute us. That would be very bad.
